Welcome to the Church of Saint Mary Syderstone

Summer dawn at Syderstone © Jon Bunting

Saint Mary's is the parish church for the communities of Syderstone, Barmer, Blenheim Park and Wicken Green Village. Click here for How to Find Us.
The church is open every day of the year during daylight hours and vistors are always welcome. We've recently erected large signs on the Docking Road to make the church easier to find.
A historic round tower church of Norman origins in its present form, people have been coming to worship, meet together, celebrate Christmas, Lent, Easter and Harvest, be married, unite at christenings, and pay respect to family and friends at funerals, for around thirty generations.

ST. Mary's North Creake - Momentous Times’

Momentous Times


What links a German schoolgirl, an American opera singer, a Scottish charity worker, an English governess in Moscow and the third woman to climb Popocatepetl? - ‘Momentous Times’. This is a dramatic presentation of the extraordinary experiences of five women in Europe during World War I. Stories from their personal diaries and journals tell us about their lives from 1914 – 1918; falling in love, fleeing from the front, meeting death for the first time, growing up … knitting socks for soldiers is referred to, but these women were far too busy for such homely war efforts.

SUNDAY, 4th NOVEMBER at 2 p.m.


Tickets £10. to include Tea & Cake
